Fall Frolics

The Annual Fall Frolics Carnival is one of Potomac's most beloved and anticipated Potomac traditions! It is also Potomac's first big fundraiser of the school year. Over the past 42 years Fall Frolics has generated more than $7.5 million to support student scholarships and faculty development.

The Fall Frolics Carnival is the highlight of a week's activities and fun for the entire family. This popular event is set for Saturday, October 19, 2019, so mark your calendar now.

There will be games and carnival rides, a dunking booth, face painting, tattoos, hairspray, the popular Wheel of Fortune, the Nearly New clothes boutique, and much more. Enjoy a great lunch or snack the day away with delicious food served in the US Circle and Quad. When your sweet tooth calls, stop at the Intermediate School Bake Sale booths in the Quad, or take a treat home for dessert!

Our volunteers are an integral part of the success of Fall Frolics. Mark your calendars and plan to be a part of this community-wide event on Saturday, October 19, 2019. Potomac parents and friends, old and new, are encouraged to volunteer and join in this cherished event.
